This extraction was taken from microfilm number (T625-547). This enumeration was performed in January, February and March of 1920. This extraction was performed in January of 2002.It contains the towns of Russell City, Dorrance City and Bunkerhill. This enumeration contains 2,787 individuals in 510 households. It should be noted that there were several other smaller towns listed and then crossed out. The persons living in these town are listed under the township only.

The criteria for extraction is that either the individual or one of their parents had to be German who came from Russia.

The format has been changed slightly in the extraction. The occupation field has been removed and the Town/Twp column has been inserted. This column now contains the township (abbreviated Twp) or the Town followed by a "-" and then either the abbreviation or the name of the township.

Several of the enumerators gave specific locations for the Place of Birth of either the individual or the parents. The following is the key to those Places of Birth.

Saratov = Saratov Province Russia Samara = Samara Province, Russia
Posen = Posen, Germany Telausla = Telausla (Fischer), Russia
Reinwald = Reinwald, Russia  

The spelling of surnames and given names by some of the enumerators is rather creative especially in Plymouth Township. I would advise all who use this extraction to be rather creative in the spelling of surnames or given names. The surnames and the given names are spelled exactly the way that they were on the census.
